Stuff You Need to Know
This week’s word of the week is cairn.
A cairn is a mound of stones erected as a memorial or marker.
“The friends built a cairn on the beach before going home to remember the fun and the
books they had read that day.”
Students participating in Shadow Day.
Shadow Days are coming up soon! If your brother or sister is planning on coming to school with you please remind them to turn in their permission slips to Office 126. Also, in order to host an 8th grader, YOU MUST ATTEND the Shadow Day Meeting on Wednesday, November 15th. This meeting will take place right after school in the Jr. Sr. Lounge. All students participating must attend, NO exceptions. The meeting will be very brief so please make arrangements to be there if you want to participate. This meeting is NOT FOR STUDENT HELPERS! Student Helpers are meeting on a different date that has been communicated to them already. Please do not ask to leave a class to see us regarding Shadow Days.
